  • I think this is a great idea. We should do it more. http://www.pledgebank.com/atheistbus
  • No, and I'm an atheist. There's nothing I hate more than public displays of propaganda; whether it is religious or non-religious makes no difference to me. [EDIT] Since posting this a while ago, I've grown to loosely support it. It's not something I would actively campaign for, but I'll be damned if the religious proselytizers grab all the attention while non-believers just sit back and take it.
  • No I wouldn't support it, what idiot wrote that line? If you're going to make some kind of political statement, at least make it funny or catchy. Whoever wrote that was just plain stupid.
  • I guess it's equal. I've seen a billboard that said "The real supreme court meets up here" - God While that may be "funny", it's still a form of advertising religious beliefs. I probably would support that ad, even though it seems very "final". I'm 99.999% sure there is not god.
  • I believe that there is a supreme being (God), but I chose to live my own life. People might feel offensive to it.
  • I'd laugh, and remind myself to tell someone about it, but then I would forget all about within a few minutes.
  • Well, aside from the dispension of God, What exactly should we stop worrying about? Being a good person? Following the outline of morality? Or simply going to hell for our transgressions? This statement brings up an interesting question about how a person feels about God in the first place. If he is a savior, what do we have to worry about? If he is a supreme judge of our life, would we not strive to be better people? I would hope this question would ultimately get people thinking about these things and that is good. A life not examined is one not worth living. I am also a big believer in free speech so, if you feel it is worth the cost, the please do, but I doubt anyone would stop worrying because of it.
  • I absolutely love the idea.
  • Why not? Here you can see billboards with messages 'from' god. For example, "Life is short, eternity isn't"- God or "Lost? MY BOOK is your guide (something like that)"- God These two are a short drive from my house. They're very amusing. Oh and the billboards are big.
  • I would, yeah. I'd probably make it a bit different though - perhaps more catchy and amusing as well as provocative. I have a t-shirt that reads "God is busy, may I help you?". I like that. Maybe try "There are no gods to spank you for being naughty, but WE will: Mistress Medusa's Den of Iniquity" OR "There's probably no god, so let's make this place heaven instead of waiting..." Hmmmm... This advert thing is trickier than I thought... ;-)
  • it is true and fantastic at last the lies are been broken we need and end now to all religious lies there is no god and never was any.
  • I like it- theres some Jesus this and jesus that crap all over- this is good- and it makes sense. anyone who doesnt think so is a fartbag ( i love that word)
  • yes, I support the advert, because I believe there is NO god, we put up with all the religious crap out there so why not...
  • I heard that on the radio today, it's happening in London. It would get my attention most likely, and I don't doubt the purposes of the people responsible for this, but to me an advertisement is an advertisement, I don't need no sign to tell me what to believe, or rather, not believe. But, freedom of speech is great, and I encourage that anyway.
  • I would think "what a waste of money. They could have donated that money to get my gooch waxed" i support their right to make the advert and display it. Just seems pointless
  • What I support is freedom of speech, if the message is not out of line and offensive to the public. In this case, it is..so I do NOT support it.
  • What's wrong with the ad? One sees christian messages everywhere? What's wrong with this one? Support it or not, I don't see anything wrong with it.
  • No I would not. It is a postulate with no argumentation. Not likely to change anybody's mind. So why waste effort or money on it. If I did I would have thrown away my moral right to critizize fx the phelpites for doing the same thing ("sure but my postulates are less hateful" is a poor defence at best). regards JakobA
  • Saying that there is probably no God means there is probably no afterlife--but since the afterlife is forever I'd want to be a little more certain just as a matter of prudence, and investigate the matter thoroughly.
  • I don't "support" it...it doesn't matter to me...I know the truth and it is up to each individual to search for and find the truth.......(unsubscribed)
  • I'd neither support nor defend the message. Rather, I'd support the sponsor's right to d it. Now if my tax dollars paid for it, I'd be pretty pissed off.
  • I am a little confused as to how one could "support" a bus advert. I see no more offence in this ad to one advertising McDonalds, or the Wonderbra ad which read "Hello Boys". Advertising is what it is - it portrays a message which we can either accept or reject, and then get on with our lives. Whether or not I agree with the ad is another matter. Remember Voltaire? (or rather, the words atrributed to him: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."
  • "Don't shoot the businger." It is free speech. And they probably mean well. The two sentences are completely unrelated, though.
  • lol, sure.
  • I support it, but Im not sure what difference it would make. If all it takes is a billboard to change your core beliefs on the metaphysical nature of reality, then yours is a small mind indeed.
  • Freedom speech is welcome, but I can't say I would be thrilled with it...
  • I'd rather look at semi nude Calvin Klein underwear models, but, whatever, bring it on. No difference to my beliefs.
  • I Support the sponsor's right to display anything they want, provided of course it conforms to local decency laws.
  • Not sure what you mean by "support". I'd support the right for anyone to post such an ad with funds from his/her own pocket, sure. Anyway, if it's a New York City bus...the ad would be loaded with graffiti making it unreadable in no time flat...along with all the other ads.
  • This is a followup to my comment #18. Despite two years of my bitter complaining, the incompetent boobs who run Answerbag haven't managed to erase a bug that doesn't always let you reply to people who comment on your posts. "Well, 23skidoo, presumably we'll all get there--but what makes you think we'll all be in the same condition? I certainly hope that Stalin and Hitler are in hell, and that Mother Theresa is in heaven, and it's worth making the effort to find out how to be where she is and not where they are. And sharpjwe, I'll admit that there is no proof. It's a leap of faith. But the atheists have to make a tremendous leap of faith too. Last month's Discover magazine said that there must be an infinity of universes for one to exist with the exact physical laws that support life. Atheists have to believe in a material infinity, theists have to believe in an immaterial infinity. Take your pick. Considering atheism's sorry record, I'll go with God."
  • yes... yes i would.
  • No I wouldn't. I find it absurdly inept and has an air of desperation about it.
  • We live in a secular world so we must expect it. Those of us whom know there is are supposed to set examples and love all people regardless ~~~ so far most all of us whom say, "Yes there is God!" are too busy defending our position rather than showing what the true love of God is. This is because there are too many "church Christians" and too few "Bible Christians".
  • I would support it, if zealots can hold marches in towns then why can't anti religious people, we have free speech after all.
  • No - it is against the rules that say they need to be honest. Use of "probably" implies that there may be a god - which is obviously untrue. Substitute "definitely" for "probably" and it would be OK (and beneficial).
  • I wouldn't i dont think it is very fair
  • I did.
